Hey, what would be the best suggested kit for a -16CG to build, and any way of acquiring some decals to place the bird in the Nickel circa 1996-2000? Possibly both the blue tail flashes and the green? Tail numbers preferred would be 89-2009 and or 89-2018. But the old CO bird 88-0550 with the "Neon Chicken" would be a nice bird too, we also had 88-0532 with the lightning bolt for the 31st Ops Group, first with a split longways blue/purple, then later green/purple for the Nickel and Dime. We also had 89-2016 for the 16th AF flagship. I can't recall the original tail flash, but sometime during 1997 it was repainted to what we called the "band-aid" a giant blue strip across the middle of the tail with bright white stars in it, and a split triangle/diagonal blue/purple stripe as the tail flash. Later there was some sort of lightning bolt design as I've seen in a few pictures. If you require some of the names for the rails for these birds let me know, I can remember most of them if you need it.
If it aint broke dont fix it, and yes Sir its supposed to leak like that
